About the Book

Tone and Theme
ToneThe tone of this book would be mysterious because throughout the entire book, Ali, Dulcie,and Emma always have something going on and something always happens and you are always on the endge of your seat and want to keep reading to figure out what is going to happen next.
The theme would have to be to believe what little kids say to you, even if it sounds crazy. I say this because Emily is a little girl and she is constantly saying things that sound impossible and no one ever believes her. At the end, all the characters find out she was telling the truth all along and they know they should hve trusted her.
Dulcie is Alis aunt and Emilys mom. She is usually very nice but she can go crazy when she is stressed or upset.
Ali is a 13 year old girl that loves to read and she also likes to spend time outside. She really likes the book "To Kill A Mocking Bird".
Emily is Alis cousin and Dulcies daughter. She is a sweet little girl that seems to know what she is talking about all the time. (obviously these arnt actually what the real charcaters look like, but the pictures match their characteristics)
